    Avid FX Library & viewing thumbnails

    I'm trying to view & preview effects in the Library Browser window of Avid FX64, the version delivered with MC 7.0.2. When I choose the default folder as the option, it finds the library. If I then choose to load thumnails it loads EVERY effect but I'm left being unable to shoose a specific category. If I select the specific folder to look for a category, say "transitions - glow" it doesn't find anything even though the folder is there. Any ideas on how to get previews in the Library Browser window?

    Not sure what's going on.  Make sure you're at the end of the chain with no more twirl down arrows, etc.

    It working fine for me.

    Best of luck.

    In the Library Browser the only twirl down arrow offers where to look for the Keyframe Library; "Use Default Folder" or "Choose Folder". The Library files do exist on C: but as mentioned in the original post, when I select "generate thumbnails" it loads everything into memory but gives me no option to preview effects. Any other thoughts out there??

    Have you re-installed?  On the latest 6.4 version?

    A few years ago I made a short video tutorial on the danger of trying to generate all possible thumbnails for Avid FX.

    it is HERE  (NB. If the video doesn't play on your browser, you should try it with Firefox)

    The point being that you should be very careful about generating all thumbnails.

    Regards

    PS. The tutorial was made in Avid FX 5.8(32 bit) - the appearance of the buttons has changed in Avid FX 6.x (64 bit) but the functions should work in a similar fashion
